Structural Renovations Limited are currently working to repair and waterproof canopies at a sheltered housing complex known as Isleden House in Islington.
The estate was built in 1948 and opened by Queen Mary the following year. In 1953 the estate was handed over to the City of London who have instructed these works.
Following an initial condition survey concrete repairs have been completed using proprietary repair products, followed by the application of a pigmented anti-carbonation coating, which will extend the life of both repaired and unrepaired concrete.
The top surface of the canopies have been prepared and subsequently treated using a glass fibre reinforced polyurethane waterproof membrane to further protect the concrete.
The above works form part of a larger scheme that we have been asked to assist the City of London, which will involve us returning to the estate in 2021.
